what i think is the most useful thing about tab.

take someone like Derek Trucks. He plays exclusively in open E. If a person spends their whole career playing in standard tuning and you give them a guitar that's tuned to open E and a piece of music in standard music notation, that would really blow me away if the could make the switch and sight read it on the spot. I've never met anyone who could do that. But with tabs it's totally easy.

Fantastic point. I'm a huge fan of alternate tunings (I've written and recorded an entire ablum of alternate tuning pieces).

And when I write them down, so I can remember how to play them in the future..I always use guitar tab, as it is MUCH less mind numbing to do so.

Also...thanks for the link to the DTB tabs...can't wait to check those out with my guitar in my hands!!!
